L As In Love Book Three by Ruth Gogoll


This book continues directly where book two ended and is mainly focused on Silvia Wilke.

Carolin and Rebekka’s love seems to be going from strength to strength. They are for the most part a devoted and happy couple. So, why isn’t Rebekka spending more time with Carolin? What secret is she hiding? Carolin loves Rebekka with all her heart, but how long will she let Rebekka get away with leaving her alone evenings and weekends?

Chris and Sabrina, once the ideal couple, the couple everyone thought was together forever, seem to be trying to work through their problems. Then Sabrina drops a bombshell. What secret has Sabrina divulged? Will Chris and Sabina get over this latest problem or will it be the end of their relationship?

Marlene is currently making porn films, of course she would rather be driving a truck, but beggars can’t be choosers. She has to earn some money to pay her bills. She certainly isn’t without a variety of women. But does she want any of them?

Thea is still around. She has broken the hearts of both men and women. Now it appears she is breaking her own heart. Will she ever find the love she is looking for?

Anna and Anita have got together. Anna is still carrying a torch for Sabrina. Can their relationship last under these circumstances? Anita is loveable and easy going, but how much will she put up with before she has had enough of being second best? Or will Anna see what she has right in front of her and change?

Rick, Carolin’s best friend is still yearning for Melly. This doesn’t stop her having dates with other women though.

Melly’s past catches up with her. Her long hidden, deep dark secret is revealed. Is this why she keeps women at arms length? What is going to happen to her now?

Last but not least, we come to Silvia, Melly’s sister. Silvia goes through the most devastating traumatic experience she is ever likely to have in her life. How is she going to cope? Will Silvia give up the will to go on living?

This is another wonderfully well written book in the L as in Love series. As with the previous two books, I found I couldn’t put it down. The book is a real page turner. I wanted to read fast to find out what was going to happen next. But I forced myself to slow down to savor the reading experience.

The characters are so true to friends we could and indeed probably do have in our everyday lives. It’s like being part of the group. We meet characters from the previous books, plus new ones are added in as the story progresses.

There is quite a mixture of different stories here, so there is a lot of different emotions. Sad, happy, some parts are humorous and some parts are hot, sizzling hot. It all comes together seamlessly for our reading pleasure.

I would advise getting book four ready to read right after this one. I simply can’t wait to get stuck in right away. A lovely book for a cold winter night in by the fire or equally great for a read on the beach.
